Reception

reception

Year R takes the youngest pupils in our school.  The class teachers are Mrs J Bagley and Miss J Bird in Class RJB and Mrs W Kemp and Mrs L Grexhammer in Class RDM.  They are ably supported by the TAs – Mrs J Potter, Mrs L Brown, Mrs C Trustram and Mrs D Randall.

Many of the pupils will be only 4 when school starts in September, having their 5th birthdays during the school year.  With such young children, it is important to provide a stimulating and fun environment as their learning is far more play-based than in later years.  Our school has two classrooms and a dedicated outside area available for their learning and we are very proud of the how well our youngest members achieve and enjoy their first year in school.
